china should not be allowed to get away with this 😡 Unfortunately this was always going to happen, it was just a matter of time Aussies? a dog of US 22-May-2020 'said the laws would ban secession, foreign interference, terrorism' China is like, what are you going to do about it? It has never been so evident that the world, and its businesses, can’t trust a genocidal regime that lies, steals,Threatens, coerces, bullies, infiltrates,…

U.S. Intervention in China's Internal Affairs. Taiwan is Chinese territory. US Sold Arms to Taiwan. I hope people all over the world can see how insidious the United States is. It will be interesting to see how Australia intends to find new trading partners now. This isn't Australia's fight to have. The UK signed the agreement with China!. Hong Kong was suppose to be left open for 50 years after the handover. The riots have no doubt impacted the economy

The US must stop internal terrorist activity in Hong Kong... Typical two of the youngest countries on the planet United States & Australia, who both committed full genocide of the people they invaded have so much to say about China, one of the oldest cultures on the planet, the common thread in all this blood letting is England..

It was bound to happen..from the day when Britain lease on the country expired. . wow we really are acting like the US's dog Oh Dear. We need to ready ourselves to accept HK refugees.

China doesn’t care what the world says, they’re going to impose their law anyway. Look at how they converted 7 atolls into military bases with airfields and missile launchers in the South China Sea, under the nose of Obama who did nothing to stop them during his presidency. Isn't it crazy how just after China lost the trade war... and Hong Kong opinion ... and the China sea opinion ... suddenly there was a virus that was supposed to kill most of the world ... appearing right next to China's main biological warfare facility ... distracting everyone?

We need to support Hong Kong. First its them, next its Australia. No more 1 nation 2 systems in HK 😣😣😣 Chinese dictatorship finalising the invasion - RIP Hong Kong I am confusing.

FatherBob Father Bob please tell me you dont watch sky please please I am confirming. Is China care what law be used in Tasmania? Hawaii? Irish? China’s capital & financial capital unaffected by the ChineseVirus. Chinese companies benefiting everyday while others lose. China profited by importing sanitizers. China threatening Taiwan & HK while countries busy fighting pandemic. Tell me again how China didn’t plan this?

What’s next, Australia supporting small Palestine over big bully Israel? AU 'deeply concerned' doesn't cut it. China's new HK Security Law is the stake through the relevance of the WW2 great powers global institutional achievement, the UN. The prelude is Israel's pending west bank annexation. auspol ausdef MasterChefAU 10NewsFirst politicsabc

What's this got to do with some two bit island of 25 million people? 🤔 Australia China is on full tilt now, looking like some desperate deer in the headlights Ok now find new buyers for Oz Iron and steel. Communism is a cancer. When Spain arrested and severely sentenced Catalan leaders, and when Catalan demonstrators were suppressed, the Western world turned a blind eye. Hypocritical Westerners will only stare at China.🤔

Australia keeps silent for its citizen Assange and again become righteous for HK issue, not suprised. China help HK people to return to the life as normal as the one before the protests became terrorism. Recognise Taiwan as an independent country. China should forget history . Move on.

It’s a Chinese province, none of our business ...declarations mean nothing: it is the end of Democracy for HK: special status should be revoked along with access to western debt markets for the Maoists...

China plans to tighten laws for Hong KongIn what may be a response to the protests of the last year China plans an overhaul of Hong Kong's laws that will clamp down on protesters, foreign interference and other anti-government activity. Whatever. I'm done with apologists for China. Same with apologists-lite for them, also. FreeHongKong China owns it about as much as they do Japan or South Korea. Any attempt to control it like the rest of their country is nothing but potential genocide. because lets face it... CCP don't care for human lives. My heart goes out to Hong Kong.

China to impose sweeping national security law in Hong KongChina is set to impose new national security legislation on Hong Kong, provoking fears of further protests as China recovers from the coronavirus pandemic.

But, weather or not new law should be imposed on hongkong is totally up to hongkonger. Hopefully Beijing won't play a too important role. Gonna have another year lost for HK then. Protest, virus and now protest again. No Matter who’s wrong who’s right, HK is losing its economic status and will definitely becomes a normal city enjoying less privilege
